  • Guided Reading

    Here at Yardleys, we know that reading is incredibly important for young people. Reading improves the life chances of children, promotes mental wellbeing, and increases their chances of doing well at school. As a result, students participate in Guided Reading: four 25 minute sessions a week dedicated to reading. Students read a range of different books together as a class, led by their form tutor, and they then have meaningful discussions about what they have read.
